Create the Change Day 2018

PGK Founder Molly Yuska at Create the Change Day - Boston 2017.
Kids enjoying service projects at Create the Change Day - SF Bay Area 2017

We’re excited to announce the dates for our annual Create the Change Day events for 2018!

Los Angeles: Sunday, October 7

San Francisco Bay Area: Sunday, October 21

Boston: Sunday, November 4

This is a fun, family friendly event where kids, teens, and families will complete hands-on service activities to support local charities and causes in their area. Together we put together literally thousands of items that support literacy, environmental awareness, the homeless, disaster relief, soldiers deployed overseas, people facing serious illness, and more. There’s raffle prizes, DJs and live music, snacks, and more!

We promise you’ll have a great time, and do lots of good while you’re at it!

“Individually we are a drop. Together, we are an ocean.”

The “Giving Lists”

This is where we celebrate the kids, groups, schools, and others out there making the world a better place, one good deed or project at a time.

How do you make it on the list? Just do something for someone else (or for the planet, or for animals), and tell us about it! You can do this in one of two ways:

  • Tell your story on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter and @ tag us! We’ll reblog your story and feature you on the list.
  • Contact us and tell us who you are, where you’re from, what you did, and include a photo or video!

We want to see just how big this list can get!
